The Fox Theater, Pomona, California
20 December, 2014
I was really looking forward to shooting this concert. Two legendary industrial bands that share an incestuous history. Together again on the same stage after many years. What's not to like!
FLA hit the stage with a vengeance, because when you're the opening act for Skinny Puppy, well you better bring it. FLA played a good set, but I think their ability to connect with the audience was somewhat hampered by the atrocious stage lighting they chose to use. Mostly they played in the dark, using the occasional bit of back lighting. I mostly tried to grab a shot when an infrequent strobe went off of between songs. They sounded great, but visually, not so much. A highlight of the set for me was meeting Wes Marsala, another local photographer whose work I admire. Super nice guy, and super talented as well.
